This condo has something for everyone, historic charm galore as the unit features original woodwork including mantles and crown molding throughout. Original heart of pine floors in the main living and bedroom and travertine tile in the remainder of rooms.

What makes this condo unique

Pool and Original Historic Details, oh and of course, the location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Brant,

I have finally got caught up enough here at home and work to send you an email to say THANK YOU! We loved Savannah and your condo. You have a very nice neighbor also. I can't remember her name but she lives there full time? It took us a few days to really get our adventure game on and get out there, but once we did.....HOLY COW there is cool stuff all over that area! We took a history/ghost tour one night with a guide named Rhet, and it was so interesting that our 12 year old ate it up. The parts of the Historic district that we were afraid to walk at night were not so scary after all. Of course it wasn't spooks that we were afraid to run into but our fellow man who can be evil. Instead,we ran into many nice and helpful strangers. My husband and I have only met that many out going, up front nice folks in one other place and that's Gettysburg PA.

We found it best to get out and about early in the morning and come back to your place around lunch time to avoid the hottest parts of the day. The pool was great at that time of the day and then we could enjoy deciding which restaurant to try for dinner. I have to say The Pirate House was our favorite, but we ran out of nights to try them all, maybe next time. =)

All in all we loved it and would have loved staying longer. The high ceilings and the nook/room before the pool were my favorite things about the place. Perfect spot for morning coffee. Plus the neighbor told us that when you/workmen, were underneath your place you found a bayonet from the revolutionary war (she thought). That is amazing and my imagination went nuts with that thought. We did laugh a bit at the hearse tours that drove by now and again. The poor people in them looked kinda sea sick. We also watched your movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. We had actually never seen that before and of course after we watched it I had to google the history of it.

Anyway, we may come back to Savannah someday (I hope), and it will be you we call. Thanks again for letting us use your place.

Comfy & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The location is great! Close enough where you could walk places, but since it was so hot, we used Lyft to get everywhere and it was less than $6 to get just about anywhere even on a holiday weekend. It was easy to find, parking on the street was available and free, and it had just about everything we needed. We never ended up using the pool because we kept so busy, but it looked very clean and it was nice to have an area to sit out back in the morning.

There were a couple of small things that should be remedied for future guests. There was only 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom, and we couldn't find additional toilet paper anywhere so we had to go down the street to the Dollar General to get more, which shouldn't be our responsibility. And there wasn't any hand soap in the 1/2 bathroom. The only other thing was the pull out sofa was not comfortable at all. So I wouldn't really count that as a place to sleep. The other two beds/bedrooms were great and had plenty of room to spread out with all your things. The kitchen had everything that was needed. And David was quick to respond when we messaged him.

Overall, this is a great place with a great location. I would recommend staying here.

David was a great host and addressed all of our concerns immediately. Good place to stay with kids because of the pool and off street parking was a plus. Great location to get to anywhere by bike or car. Uber rides to downtown were under $6.

Very disappointed. Needs lots of TLC!~

  • 2 of 5

Many things not in good shape. Broken toilet paper and towel holder. Bathroom sink didn't shut correctly. There was poop on the toilet seat right after cleaners left. Teflon pans are in dangerous shape with so much Teflon scraped off. Many light bulbs don't work - we had to take from other rooms just to light the living room. It was located in a sketchy area - didn't seem very safe.. Kitchen table is not even in the kitchen; it is in back area through the bedroom/laundry room. There was only 1 full bathroom with a shower had no pressure. They should not list that it is good for 2 couples - who wants to share a bathroom with 3 other adults and inconveniently in one of the couples bedroom? The shower curtain was dirty. The sofa was dirty - we washed a blanked to put over it the duration of our stay. The fridge had broken shelves. Front bedroom practically on the street - noisy. Dusty ceiling fans. Front door lock is loose. Dishwasher leaks and doesn't work well. Pool was unkempt and chairs were stained and looked nothing like the photo in the listing. Bottom line it looked uncared for. Owner should check cleaners job before they let guests stay. We treated friends of ours and we were pretty embarrassed.

Owner's Response: Well, this is NOT the review we hope for. I am always disappointed to hear a guest does not thoroughly enjoy their stay at one of my places. However, I would like to address a couple of points in this review, as I do not feel it is entirely accurate: 1. Most crucial to me is my responsiveness to guests’ needs. If you look through other reviews you will see I am very available and do my best to fix any issues that come up during guests’ stays. Unfortunately, I did not hear any complaints from this guest during their stay. If she had contacted me I would have happily fixed any issues I could. 2. Cleanliness – Unfortunately, I have to admit the unit may not have been cleaned well enough. I had just recently hired new staff and I received several complaints during this period. I have removed and replaced this cleaning staff since then and have had no further complaints. Again, this could have been easily remedied if she had let me know. 3. Half Bath - The toilet paper and hand towel holder were loose. They have been replaced. I checked and the sink seems work with no problem. 4. Kitchen - New baking pans have been purchased. Several old ones are still there and in fine shape. I could not find a leak or problem with the dishwasher. Its brand new. There may have been some user difficulty there. 5. Lights - Two light bulbs, all that were out in the unit, have been replaced. 6. Table - The layout of the condo is well documented in photos. If you have any specific questions, please let me know and I will be happy to clarify. There is a dining table in the sunroom and a coffee table, which most people use, in the living room. 7. 2 Couples – The condo is absolutely suitable for 2 (and even 3) couples. As stated in the description, there is one full bath, as in the case of all hotel rooms with 2 queen beds. There’s also a half bath, which is convenient. If you need a private full bath per couple, I would suggest getting 2, 1-bed units rather than a 2-bed unit. 8. Pool – I am not sure why she had issue with the pool. We have weekly chemical testing and twice weekly cleanup of the pool area. It is usually in very nice shape. So, it's a shame these guests weren’t happy with their stay. But, I have to say that this review is pretty exaggerated in some areas. If you have any questions about this unit, PLEASE feel free to ask and I will answer quickly and honestly. I love giving guests a great stay. I look forward to having you at my property. :!)
